It’s with heavy hearts we’ve decided to close down Paragon.
We truly appreciate everything you’ve put into Paragon. We received many passionate ideas for where to take the game; the outpouring of thoughtful suggestions is another testament to this incredible community.
After careful consideration, and many difficult internal debates, we feel there isn’t a clear path for us to grow Paragon into a MOBA that retains enough players to be sustainable.
We didn’t execute well enough to deliver on the promise of Paragon. We have failed you — despite the team’s incredibly hard work — and we’re sorry.
To try to make this right, Epic is offering a full refund to every Paragon player for every purchase on any platform. This refund will come directly from Epic rather than your platform provider.
To request your refund, follow these steps:
- If you’re not playing on PC, link your Epic account (create one if necessary).
- If you play on PC, or have already linked your Epic account, you can request your refund here.
We’ll continue operating Paragon servers until April 26, 2018. As the player population continues to decrease, matchmaking times and quality will further degrade.
Thank you for joining us on this journey and for your dedication to Paragon.
Now that you have read all that, I’m going to tear Epic Games a new one for this statement!
Okay I’m kidding, but I do disagree with part of their statement. I respect their decision to close down a game they feel isn’t up to their standards, but they did not fail us. They put a lot of hard work and dedication into the game and it truly showed with every patch released. The game was great and even though the servers shut down in just under two months, I don’t feel Paragon as a game is a failure. So what led to the end of Paragon then Hyperlink? Well I believe it was the card system Paragon used. I believe this system required a learning curve that turned people away. With just a little more tweaking or maybe a tutorial, I feel Paragon could have gone the distance.
Thank you Epic Games for your efforts during the production of this game. I am sad to see it go but at the same time excited to watch your other games grow. Guess I’ll turn on some Fortnite!
